Healthy Birthday Cake Protein Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting and Rainbow Sprinkles

Servings: 12 protein bars
Prep Time: 1 hr
Total Time: 1 hr
These no-bake Birthday Cake Protein Bars are fudgy, sweet, and taste like funfetti cake! Except these are made without the white flour, butter, and excess sugar. These are gluten free, vegan optional, and low sugar!

Ingredients

Protein Bars:

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 4 oz Neufchâtel Cream Cheese (or ⅓ Less Fat Cream Cheese; room temperature)
  • 2 tbs Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Crème-Flavored Liquid Stevia Extract
  • ¼ cup Natural Rainbow Sprinkles

Instructions

For the Protein Bars:

  • Line an 8x8” brownie pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In an electric stand mixer bowl fitted with a beater attachment, add all of the ingredients. Mix on low speed until everything is fully incorporated.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix on medium speed for one last mix. Mixture should be thick and fudgy, like cookie dough.
  • Scoop the mixture into the brownie pan and flatten it out.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, almond milk and stevia extract. Scoop mixture over the protein bar base and spread to the edges of the pan (I used an offset spatula). Place in the freezer uncovered for 1 hour.
  • Lift the mixture out of the pan. Slice into 12 bars.
  • Scatter the sprinkles on top. To store, simply place a sheet of parchment paper on top of a cake pedestal, arrange the protein bars on top, and cover with a cake dome (keeps for 1 week in the fridge or a few months in the freezer).

Recipe Notes

Do not use whey protein powder...  you'll get a gooey, sticky mess!
If you'd like to make an ingredient substitution, you'll have to test that in the kitchen on your own.  I tested the recipe above and feel it's perfect as is  ;)
